Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme host by The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s TTT is Top Ten Most Intimidating Books (might be intimated by size, content, that everyone else loves it but you are sure you won’t etc). I broke my list down into books that I haven’t read because of the hype (and I’m scared of my reaction), books that are long and books that I am afraid I am not going to like (and I want to like).
Books I want to Love
Game of Thrones
The first three books all have a lot of hype surrounding them so I am afraid once I pick them up I will force myself to like them even if I don’t. Maybe when the hype dies down a bit. The middle three intimate me because they are a bit lengthy and I know it will take me some time to read them and I am just in a light, quick read mood so I won’t be picking these up any time soon. And the last three books are all books I want to love. I want to love Silver Linings Playbook because I loved the movie and I fear I wont enjoy the book as much. I want to love Casual Vacancy because its JK Rowling but it’s so British. Lastly I want to love Taken because Erin Bowman is such a great person and I have heard some not OK reviews about this book. I just want to love all the books!
And Game of Thrones has it’s own section for many reasons. I have probably been reading this book for close to three months and I am only about half way through. The length, the hype and the fact that I want to love this book makes it intimating to me!
